Jenni and I took off for a quick visit to Bermuda in February. The trip wasn't about seeing everything and being on the go. This one was more about taking some time, relaxing, and wandering around. We confined most of our trip to Somerset Island in Sandys Parish, but we made it down to Dockyard a couple times and caught the ferry into Hamilton for bite to eat at Juice 'n Beans cafe and the Hog Penny Pub. Not much happening in Bermuda in February, so its a great opportunity for off-peak deals. More on that later. Meanwhile enjoy some nice photos of the ocean. 
Bermuda has a rocky coast, with a 280 mile square-mile reef platform. Home to hundreds of shipwrecks over the centuries, it's no wonder Bermuda was 'discovered' by shipwrecked English colonists. The water was a bit too chilly for me this time, but I was brave enough to snorkel the last time I was here, November 2009.
It's funny to hear the sound of the surf crashing on the beach punctuated by roosters crowing first thing in the morning. But you get used to it.

The Clocktower building in the Royal Naval Dockyard. Once part of the islands' defenses Dockyard contains shops, a cinema, museums and restaurants and the popular Dolphin Quest interactive experience.
